UC Davis Health System is redefining how health-care professionals meet health challenges of the future. From cutting-edge telehealth programs and an innovative new school of nursing focused on interprofessional education to multi layered residency programs that train physicians in medicine and community advocacy, UC Davis is enacting health-care and health reform from the inside out.
Building upon UC Davis' longstanding tradition of interdisciplinary and interprofessional education, the university's newest graduate group – the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group – brings to fruition a new vision of leadership that will help advance the university into its second century of service and meet the needs of a newer, rapidly evolving and more complex health-care environment.
Although classroom instruction and practicing techniques on models are essential components of all health-care professional training programs, the unexpected moments that a student experiences during clinical rotations often create the most memorable lessons.

UC Davis Health System is proud to be home to medical, nursing, family nurse practitioner / physician assistant, public health and health informatics students and to also be the internship site for pharmacy, nutrition and other programs. Improving the health of our communities requires that we bring together these perspectives, and UC Davis is well positioned to do so.
